This stylish workspace will put your office to shame

Bearing in mind that the 9-5 environment can have a positive effect on the wellbeing of one’s employees, Melbourne property developers PDG surrendered to the superior interior design prowess of Studio Tate to reimagine their Swanston Street offices. “PDG’s new head office gave us the chance to think differently about workplace design — this was an exciting collaboration with a valued, long-term client,” explains Alex Hopkins, Principal Interior Designer at Studio Tate. Endeavouring to highlight rather than hide the hexagonal building that used to hold the iconic Australian airline Ansett’s headquarters, the intelligent design offers a much-needed modern facelift, leaving the space brimming with the subtle sophistication of a boutique hotel.
